Sandwich Student Place ment Opportunities
What do we do?
The Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC) is one of Europe’s largest research organisations, trusted to support, enable and undertake cutting edge projects in a range of diverse fields.
STFC is one of nine organisations that have been brought together to create UK Research and Innovation (UKRI); a new organisation with a vision to ensure the UK maintains its world-leading position in research and innovation.
Through world class facilities and people, STFC is driving ground breaking advances in science, engineering, computing and technology. The work that we do is helping to shape societies, strengthen economies and transform lives. As a sandwich student you could be working with world leading experts and be involved in some of the world’s biggest and most exciting science and engineering projects.
About our Sandwich Student Programme
Each year we offer opportunities to undergraduate sandwich students to gain practical experience, working alongside technical experts at the forefront of scientific research. We offer invaluable experience with exposure to world class science and technology, and the opportunity to develop working relationships that continue well after your placement has finished.
Many sandwich placements can offer you the opportunity to develop your skills and gain vital experience, but not many can also offer you the opportunity to help make history. Here you won’t just observe - you’ll help to make things happen. We’ll trust you, value you and empower you to contribute ideas and make a difference.
In order to be eligible for STFC’s sandwich student scheme, you need to;
- Currently be at university, enrolled on an undergraduate degree course and are required or have requested to take a year out of studies to gain experience within industry
- Have the right to live and work in the UK
